I think they'll be better this year, but still not a playoff team again.

Great, great trade for the Reds. Completely stole 3 prospects for a dude coming off of his first good season that doesn't project well moving forward.

Luis Castillo has hit 100 mph and has had a great K/BB ratio in the minors. He was ranked 2nd in the Marlins farm system. Austin Brice was ranked 9th and when he switched to the pen last year, he was utterly dominant in the minors. Struggled in the show, but most guys do at first. Isiah Harris is super raw, but has super upside.

I think they sold high on him but it will take time to see how the trade worked out.

Would love Hamilton to play 150 games so he could steal 90

Why be the Redlegs trading for "hot" prospects instead of finding and developing them through scouting and their farm system?

I've heard that their top pick from last year's draft could be ready really soon, which would be a great help for them. I know I use the Cubs as an example a lot in rebuilding, for good reason, but nearly everything they had for this past season was picked up through trades. Bryant, Schwarber, Baez, Soler, and Almora are the only contributors for the Champions that came through the farm system, everyone else was acquired through trades and free agency. Sometimes you have to make trades to get players to build up.

Would you rather be mediocre for years or be terrible for 3-4 years and then have a decade of sustained success?

If you mean Queto and Chapman then this is not a fair comparison. Anything we got for them was a plus because they were about to become free agents and we would have got ZERO nothing nota for them. Every trade they have made in the last two years has been good IMO.
